I have the same problem with any pci-e external card (tried 3 diferent cards) but it would speckle & freeze monitor, then go blank (black screen). I turned off on board video, set vram to 0, & tried external powered vcard & board powered. I never had a "OVER HEATING" issue w/ cpu, gpu or anything else. I tried to get help from ECS (the board maker), big waste of time!!!! The only video this seems to want to run is its own ONBOARD! It works fawlessly for what it is! I've been trying to solve the same issue for the 8 months I've had the board. I still look, thinking maybe i'll get lucky. I basically given up on ever using a good v-card w/ this board.

Could be the CPU is overheating, you may want to check and make sure all fans are working properly, as well as making sure you have a decent amount of thermal paste on your heatsink, i recommend antec silver.

Depends on the video card that you have. If you want to game buy an inexpensive video card for your desktop that is better then the one that you are currently using. Games take advantage of the 3D hardware and this is usually the cause of what you are saying the symptom is

Windows 7 requires One Gigabyte of RAM to even run. You are most likely running out of memory when you're playing games and/or watching video. I would suggest upgrading your memory on your computer, if you're on the cheap, or if you can afford to do so, invest in a new machine.

Check to make sure that none of your system fans is clogged with dirt, wires etc.
You could also consider getting another fan installed in your system to keep things cool..
Are games the only things affected, or does this happen on other prgrams?

If you are using the on board graphics this will cause problems due to your 1 gb of ram being shared with the graphics and other things , for most of todays games that will cause many problems, I would suggest getting a video Card or playing older games that the on board graphics can support. The restart usually is a sign the the graphics capability is to low for the game, altho you can tweak your computer to some extent you will always still have problems. Now adding extra ram can always help but still i would recommend getting a video card first that your computer supports.

Hope this helps, let me know if i can further help,,,,larry

Computer Freezing


I have built several gaming computers and if I had your problem, the first thing I would try is to add a stick of memory.Then I would get me a graphics card with some memory built on the board (256 meg). You motherboard should run a pci graphics card with no problem.
